Korean Noodle Salad “Funchoza”




This is very delicious Korean noodle salad that is well known in Central Asia of Korean origin.There is many varieties of this salad,but I like the vegetarian style.You can add pan-fried strips of chicken,beef,or ground meat if desired.To get nice thin strips of vegetables I use this thin julienne slicer.

    Were you able to julienne the peppers using this julienne slicer or did you hand-cut the pepper pieces? Also, is this salad similar in taste to the other Korean carrot salad that is made frequently by Russians/Ukrainians? Thanks so much for all your amazing recipes!

      I julienned peppers by hand. It has a slight taste to the korean carrot salad but not much because here you have soy sauce and sesame oil which gives it a different taste.Carrot salad doesn’t have that.You’re welcome!!!!

  5. Спасибо за рецептик, искала его, помню вкус настоящего корейского салата вермишелевого и он очень похож на оригинал который я пробовала в начале 90-х у корейцев на Дальнем востоке. Простой и очень вкусный, пошла готовить вместе со своими дочками. Удачи вам очень хороший сайт.
